Are you a driven, proactive and compassionate individual looking to make a significant difference to the lives of vulnerable children and young people? Have you had personal experience of the Criminal Justice System or a proven track record of engaging positively with young offenders or other vulnerable groups? 

If so, St Giles is looking for a Caseworker to join their County Lines team, where you will play a pivotal role on our pioneering project.

About St Giles Trust

An ambitious, well-established charity that helps people facing adversity to find jobs, homes and the right support they need. Central to our ethos is our belief that people with first-hand experience of successfully overcoming issues such as an offending background, homelessness, addictions and gang involvement, hold the key to positive change in others. 

County Lines is a phenomenon in which criminal drug dealing operations are expanding their operations outside of the larger cities, taking over drug markets in smaller towns. Gangs target vulnerable children and young people and coerce them to transport and distribute mainly Class A drugs into areas where there is less police presence, less competition and high demand for their product. 

About this exciting opportunity

This pivotal role will see you referring clients, with reference to St Giles Trust/Rescue and Response assessment practices. You will also need to produce support plans and risk management and planning process, and to include appropriate agencies in the delivery of the service.

You will also deliver a holistic support service, working independently or with colleagues, which will include providing social and housing support, education, training and employment options, benefits work, debt advice, and appearing in court. Developing and maintaining strong relationships with regional agencies including police and social services is a key aspect of the role.

What we are looking for:

• Personal experience of the criminal justice system, lived experience of the issues facing this client group and/or experience of working with ‘high risk’, vulnerable children, young people and/or families

• Experience of engaging successfully with ‘challenging’ young people 

• Substantial experience of providing support, advice and advocacy and communicating effectively, the needs of clients to other professionals

• Strong IT skills, particularly MS Office, and the ability to work with a case database

• The ability to use and develop monitoring systems to record all aspects of the project

In return, you can expect a competitive salary, generous leave allowance, staff pension, flexible working, a mentoring programme, an advice and counselling service, access to clinical supervision, season ticket loan and much more.

For further information and to apply please visit our website.

Closing date: 11pm, 26th July 2020. Interviews: 3rd August 2020 (Interviews may be held via video)
